Abstract (en)

The flat surface section(3) of the axle support frame(1) has a profiling extending in the vehicle's longitudinal direction. The support frame and flat surface section are constructed in one piece and the profiling comprises corrugations. On its rear side facing away from the engine and gearbox assembly(4) the flat surface section has a number of reinforcing ribs. The support frame on the vehicle's rear end side is attached to a transverse link point at which a pedal base, side sill, A-pillar and longitudinal bearer intersect. An Independent claim is included for an engine and gearbox assembly for common use with the proposed axle support member. The assembly has a number of guide units on the rear side facing the support frame, and which in interaction with the profiling on the flat surface section effects a predetermined displacement of the engine and gearbox assembly in the event of a frontal collision of the vehicle.
